Luck and Fortune: Lunar New Year Food Traditions
Chinese Lunar New Year is a fifteen-day celebration of the arrival of spring, filled with feasts at the homes of relatives and friends. Preparing symbolic dishes that are eaten to bring good luck and fortune in the coming year is one of the most important parts of the holiday. In this talk, join Jan Stuart, the Melvin R. Seiden Curator of Chinese Art, to explore works from the museum’s collections that can tell us about Lunar New Year food traditions. Restaurant owner and culinary entrepreneur Lydia Chang of the Washington, DC-area institution Peter Chang’s joins to share stories about the celebratory dishes her family has cooked for generations and the memories that preparing these dishes evokes.
